Designing soft actuators for a textile & clothing context
Soft Matters PhD projects explore individual topics but can also be embedded in larger research frameworks. The PhDs are prepared in Ensadlab through the SACRe doctoral programme associated with the doctoral school ED540, PSL University. Their funding comes from either academic or private sources, notably through SACRe , ANR or CIFRE programmes and regularly involve both academic and industry partners.
